The planning and project planning processes are based on up-to-date and accurate infrastructure data. This reduces project risk.
As a result, the plans were updated with the determined distances, and the recorded gradients were documented. NEXTRAIL offers a powerful mobile mapping measuring device for 3D data acquisition optimised for measuring railway infrastructure.
The measuring equipment can be temporarily installed on a train and consists of the following components:
- GNSS-based inertial navigation system
- Laser scanner as a detection system for point clouds
- Camera system for capturing images
Key areas of service
Dynamic recording of the infrastructure using the TRAXIMIZER system
Evaluation of the measurement data with regard to track axes and relevant elements (such as signals, axle counters, points, balises)
Preparation of gradients for ETCS engineering
Update of the plans (as-built)
